The Virginia Special Olympics Area 14 (SOLC) serves Loudoun County, Virginia. We are a 501c3 organization that supports athletes with intellectual disabilities who are at least 8 years old. We strive to implement the vision of the national level Special Olympics organization:
To provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for all children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Special Olympics Loudoun would not exist today – and could not have been created without the time, energy, and dedication of volunteers over the years. Volunteers are the backbone of this organization; so on behalf of the athletes we serve, thank you for your interest and commitment to our mission.
More than 1.5 million individuals around the globe dedicate one of the most precious gifts to Special Olympics – their time.
What does a volunteer do? The sky’s the limit! Volunteers can assist at the events, coach athletes, help with fundraising, coordinate events, give office support, serve on committees and so much more! For more specific descriptions of opportunities, contact Caitlin Marcotte at (703) 777-0438.
